For those who weren’t born in the ’80s, Gameshark was a device that actually plugged into your game cartridges, caught the software before it reached your game console, and altered lines of code to add cheats like infinite lives. But because Gameshark was screwing with fundamental foundations of the game, it was wrought with errors. You might get infinite lives, sure, but that might come at the expense of the game’s entire backdrop going green.
Chaos Edition celebrates these errors in a Russian roulette style random code injections occurring in the background, which will ultimately result in an unpredictable, psychedelic funhouse of giant Marios, glitching environments, and sometimes even good old Exorcist-style head spinning of the beloved Italian plumber. As Kaze explains on YouTube, “This resulted in a pretty funny, unstable, and frustrating game. Don’t take this too serious and don’t try to get any progress done in the game. you won’t.”
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
